FSU football met a lot of needs with its 2020 recruiting class. I look at three true freshmen would could seeing playing time.
FSU football has a new coaching staff but the mantra is still the same. That means the best players will play regardless of classification.
There was a trend of young players playing a lot of snaps in the past two years in the Willie Taggart era.
The 2018 recruiting class saw about 30 percent of its true freshmen taking meaningful snaps.
That number increased to about 38 percent with the 2019 recruiting class. On one hand, it means there was some talent taken that’s good enough to play, but sometimes it was because there was very little depth at those positions.
The Noles took some talented players in the 2020 class and had eight players to enroll in the spring semester.
Usually early enrollees have the highest probability of playing as true freshmen because they get a head start in strength and conditioning as well as experiencing spring practice.
The positions that saw early enrollees were positions that could benefit the most. FSU had quarterbacks, wide receivers, offensive linemen, linebacker, tight-end, defensive end and a punter representing.
However, if a player is ultra-talented, it’s hard to keep them off the field whether they are able to early enroll or not.
Here are three true freshmen who I can see playing meaningful snaps in 2020.
